of massachusetts. while he lowered the tax burden on the people from one of the highest to one of the law were in the united states. that is a major sense of achievement and i admire that and i'm just delighted to be on the ticket with him. governor dukakis and i agree that we ought to have a trade policy for this country. but we've seen this administration more than double the national debt, that they've moved this country from the number one lender nation in the world to the number one destination in the world under their administration. they have not had a faith policy committee of let trade be a handmaiden for the policy objectives of the country. that this country has exported to many jobs and not enough profits. and as i work to pass a trade bill through the united states senate, through roadblocks every step of the way but we passed a trade bill that any country that has full access to the markets we are entitled to full access to their markets. now that means that we are going to stand tough for america and we are going to protect those jobs coming and we aren't a push american product

might address that gap. [laughter] there are six products of harvard law school and three products of yale law school on the supreme court. there are apparently no other law schools in the united states. [laughter] besides those two. no, it is a bizarre and unfortunately fact, i think. but those are, i hope, interesting facts about the supreme court. but frankly, i don't think they're very important. here's an important fact. about the supreme court. there are five republicans and four democrats. i will speak for somewhat longer, but this is basically all you need to know. [laughter] if be there's a takeaway here, i have gotten to the point early. there are five republicans and four democrats, and that really tells you much of what you need to know. and it is true that the justices wear robes because they're supposed to look all alike, and they're supposed to look, you know, it's supposed to give the perception that they're all pretty much the same, but just as on the other side of first street the united states congress is deeply divided according to party, so is the united states

't need sharia in the constitution. he has everything he needs in the laws of the united states, because i see them being in great continuity. and for instance, the law, the press law of 1975 is enough to implement any anti-blasphemy laws, for instance. you don't need to implement sharia to go against blasphemy, or even to constraint expression public, freedom of expression. so in a way i'm optimistic, of course, about tunisia but cautiously optimistic. because i think what you see there is the continuity of the old state. it doesn't seem that there are any intentions to change the institutions of the old state. which, in fact, are very useful for both tunis and another to reshape society for tunis and a modernist direction, and for another in an islamist one. so i will stop here, and i look forward to our discussions. thank you spent thank you very much, malika. that was a model, superb analysis and remedy at the same thing. i also have a sign here that says please continue. i'm not exactly what i use that particular sign. but i'm trying to figure that out. it's rather intimidating. gina,

and groups of men. rather than as the law holds right now, men and women in comparable jobs in the same job. so what they're trying to do is have equal pay for equal work, not equal pay for equal work, which is two very different things. there's no reason why groups of women and groups of men in the same firm should be paid the same if they have radically different jobs. look at exxon, for example, that is a group of men and oil drilling activities. it's a dirty dangerous job. you could not get me to do. you have to pay people a lot to risked their lives doing that kind of work. exxon has a group of women in communications, assistant jobs, publications. there's no reason these two groups should be necessarily paid the same. but the paycheck benefit would be moving toward requiring firms to pay men and women the same, even if they're in very different jobs. that is not paycheck fairness. that's communism. >> diana furchtgott-roth, your book, women's figures, was there a time when women were treated unfairly in the work place? >> there certainly was. there were times in the 1950s and 1960s, y

of speech who criticize religion or think that countries should pass laws against people who attack religion. and they were major differences, i mean, majority in egypt and pakistan wanted to see people punished for attack on religion. and majorities in turkey and afghanistan wanted to see people have a right to criticize religion. there are differences across muslim societies. it's not the same. we have to keep that in mind. one final note, which has to do also with interpreting particularly attitudes on syria but broadly if you're ab american presidential candidates, what do you say in i'm not sure that we were built on this urge of americans wants to do more on syria. i don't agree to that necessarily even though it's -- i want something done on syria which is separately. i'm not talking about myself in terms of tsh i'll not sure what but, you know, -- [laughter] that's not the story. you know, i mean, it's hard to see all of? , you know, bloodshed and not thing to do something. if you look at the american public, it's consistent overwhelmingly as opposed to -- the aberration to that, and
